We was looking for some indigenous/first nations artwork and a friend told us to try the museum gift shop - well worth the trip.
The gift shop is huge. It has plenty of standard gift shop items and a good assortment of stuffed animals for children. It also has a great collection of post cards, calendars and notecards that had excellent indigenous artwork from all over Canada.
We were happy to see they had plenty of clothes with indigenous artwork: shirts, jackets, hats, etc. They also had many excellent books about Canada and the numerous indigenous cultures of Canada.
If you are looking for some fantastic gifts to bring home then definitely check out this giftshop. You can visit the giftshop without going in the museum and paying admission.
